The glass we're most familiar with is made from silicon dioxide, but materials like boron, polymers and metals have also been used. Now, an international team of scientists have developed a brand new class of glass, made from metal-organic compounds. These new materials form glass more readily than other types, and are much more pliable...Continue Reading New type of glass made of metal organ
Common, relatively cool and potentially life-supporting, red dwarf stars are of particular interest to astronomers hunting down distant worlds. The latest study of Kepler data has now identified 15 new exoplanets around red dwarfs, including a system of three "Super-Earths" – one of which appears to be orbiting within the host star's habitable zone...Continue Reading Potentially habitable Sup

Inflatable habitat modules like Bigelow Aerospace's BEAM may point the way to future space station architecture, but with so many micro-meteoroids and bits of space debris shooting around in low Earth orbit, are they safe? To help minimize the risk, researchers from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and LUNA Innovations Inc. are developing ultrasensitive sensors made from carbon nanotubes
McLaren's next hypercar was confirmed at the Geneva Motor Show overnight when details of the forthcoming 'Hyper-GT' were announced. The three-seat petrol-electric hybrid will have a similar seating layout to the legendary McLaren F1, will be faster than the 243mph (391km/h) F1, will only be produced in limited quantities (106) and would have cost £1.6million plus taxes if they weren't all sol
